Detroit Pistons beat the Heat 112-103 — Game Recap

Tobias Harris poured in 25 points and Avery Bradley had 24 as the Pistons defeated the Miami Heat 112-103 in Detroit.

-Josh Richardson had his best game in several weeks.

The Pistons are making believers -or maybe they should be. This team wins at home and makes you earn everything on the offensive end in Detroit. Like I said, just keep moving forward. "Our guys on this home stand did a helluva job". But grab one (preferably against the Bucks or Pacers) of those three games for a victory and that would be a success.

The Miami Heat's strategy on offense was to launch three-pointers all game.

Center Andre Drummond (14.2 points, 15.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists) delivered another strong performance against the Hawks with 16 points, 20 rebounds and a career-high seven assists.

Rookie Luke Kennard led the Pistons' second half surge, playing excellent and earning huge fourth quarter minutes in favor of starting small forward Reggie Bullock. Avery Bradley contributed 20 points and four rebounds. Additionally, he got beat a couple times defensively in a stretch where the Pistons' bench provided no resistance to the Heat. "I was happy with everybody, but really, really proud of him". Kennard took it to heart. "If my shot is not falling, I want to be able to make an impact in other ways". During the final quarter, fatigue was evident from the 33 percent shooting effort by Miami, while their second-half shooting touch from long-range simply disappeared by connecting on just 2-of-14 (14 percent) in that area.

The Heat (6-7) settled for a 3-3 split for the six-game road trip - its longest of the season. "Ultimately that's what you want". That hasn't been the case recently however as Miami is wrapping up a six-game road trip that started nearly 10 days ago.

And considering the quality of play on both sides, maybe atop the list. He was feeling it. I was very confident when that shot went up.

"We were not able to dictate and impose our style on this game, pretty much all across the board", Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. With Detroit protecting the paint all night, the threes were open. The NBA's leading rebounder has recorded at least 12 rebounds in every game this season, becoming just the third player (Moses Malone, Kevin Love) since the 1978-79 season to achieve that feat.

Kennard's layup made it 107-97 with 2:24 left. He finished with 15 points, five rebounds, four assists and no turnovers. F/C Jon Leuer (left ankle) also did not play against the Heat.

For almost 30 years, the Pistons played at The Palace at Auburn Hills, in a Detroit suburb that hosted the franchise's Bad Boys-era title teams of 1989 and '90 and also its less pugnacious championship squad of 2004. Miami played an Eastern Conference opponent on the road for the first time since a season-opening loss at Orlando on Oct. 18.
